Top that with too many advice givers and half the time this advice are totally opposite of what is a healthy parenting trait. So here we bring you best tips to raise super healthy, confident and productive members of society.
Stop treating your kids as your property
Treat children been given to you to mentor & bring out the best in them
First of all, treat them as future citizens or humans who are here with you on this planet, than just your kids. This will always remind you of the bigger picture that they are here for. Most of the times, parents feel, kids are their personal property and they want to keep their kids off themselves, spoiling them to the core. Listen to every demand they throw. Well take easy on this habit and always keep this in mind, as if you have been given a child to mentor by God, who has to be returned back to God, as perfectly well groomed human being. This is really amazing, view put forth by Baba Ram Rahim.
Never scare them, when you are pushing them to do a task.
As we have seen, in the old school parenting, parents are seen, scaring their kids, for every single activity. Do this or ghost will come, or Do this fast, or a big wolf will come etc. This hinders a child’s ability to fully explore his potential, exhorts Gurmeet Ram Rahim Ji.
Always set good examples, yourselves
This has been a very common point in parenting. But how do we accomplish this? Simply by being yourself, or identifying those behaviors which you do not want in your kids, and removing those from yourselves first.
Leave the best wealth for your kids, Values
Teach them good values, at every instance. Honesty, integrity, handwork has no substitute. This they need to know early on, do not let them be okay with compromising on any of these. Reward consistency. Also, connect them to spirituality and meditation to achieve the above traits. Initially, you can reward them to meditate until they form a habit, says Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
So certain traits, mindful living, unconditional love, and acceptance can do wonders for kids. Treat them as friends and never let fear develop in your relationship with your kids. If your kids take you as your best friends, you have done a decent job.
